Dr. Dana Busciglio

Busciglio Orthodontics’ Newest Addition! We are proud and excited to welcome Dr. Dana Busciglio into Busciglio Orthodontics! Dr. Dana is the youngest child of Dr. and Mrs. John and Diana Busciglio and was raised here in the Brandon area. She graduated from Brandon High School in 1996. During her years at BHS she was a dancerette, involved in student government, and was dedicated to helping others through volunteer work. Upon graduation she was chosen among 400 high school seniors to receive the Junior League of Tampa Service Award for exhibiting a commitment to volunteerism.

She then attended the University of Florida where she obtained her Bachelors of Science in Human Nutrition in 2000. While at U.F., she volunteered in the dental clinic at Shands Hospital and was selected as a University Scholar and received a stipend to conduct dental research. She also served as the President of the Pre-Dental Society for 2 years and received the Outstanding Dental Member of the Pre-Professional Service Organization. As a member of Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority, she received the New Member Service Award, The Scholastic Achievement Award, and The Outstanding Member Award. She then followed in her father’s footsteps, Dr. John Busciglio, and became a dentist at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2004.

She continued her volunteer efforts while in dental school by organizing outreaches for underserved children in the Boston area and went on missionary trips to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. During her time at Tufts, she served as a voting member of the admissions committee and was elected President of the Hispanic Dental Association. Upon graduation, she received the Massachusetts Hispanic Dental Association Student Community Service Award and the Esther Kaplan Colchamiro and Ralph Colchamiro endowed prize fund for Community Service and Public Health. Dr. Dana thoroughly enjoys working with children and therefore decided to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry. She completed her specialty training at Nova Southeastern University and the prestigious Miami Children’s Hospital in 2006. She then successfully completed a voluntary rigorous examination to critique her clinical and diagnostic abilities and was designated a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2009.

During her first three years of practice, she had the opportunity to work alongside her father, Dr. John, and brother, Dr. Derek, and thoroughly enjoyed her experiences. She then pursued her degree in Orthodontics which she earned with her Master’s of Science in Dentistry with specialization in Orthodontics. Dr. Dana is the only dual trained Pediatric Dentist/Orthodontist in the Tampa Bay area and one of only a handful in the state of Florida. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, Hillsborough County Dental Society, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the American Association of Orthodontists. She is excited to work alongside her brother and with the wonderful staff and is looking forward serving all of the patients of Busciglio Orthodontics!
